Backup Copy GFS - Verification Error: File does not exist

Post by unsichtbarre » Jan 05, 2018 5:38 pm

Hi all,

I manage a Veeam B&R with a scheduled Backup Copy job. 2-daily (minimum required setting)4-Weeks, 3-Months, 4-Quarters, 5-years.

Problem is the GFS restore points are actually larger than the devices we have to store them. One month of the job is about 28TB, whereas the entire device only has 39TB. Therefore we have to move the _M, _Q, and _Y to secondary storage devices, which produces the error: Failed to perform backup file verification Error: File does not exist.

At the moment, we have all of the secondary devices added as repositories. Is there any way to tell the job to check those paths as well?

Hi John,

There is no way to choose a secondary destination in the backup copy job settings.
However, you can combine all repositories you have into Scale-Out Backup Repository, but keep in mind that feature is available starting from Enterprise level license. Thanks!
